Possible Pick Pockets at the Town Center

We received an unconfirmed tip on Friday from a community member. Her daughter was ating lunch at Panera Bread at the Town Center with her friend and she had her purse on the bacek of her chair, like many women do. A couple walking out of Panera, the man bumping her chair and then apologized very nicely. Her daughter turned around to make sure her purse did not fall off of the chair and it was still there. When her daughter went to the car and looked in her purse for something and saw that her wallet was gone. She was upset but began to call her credit card companies and bank. By the time she got in contact with all of them the couple had been to many stores and charged up to $8000.00 in expenses. Her daughter contacted JSO, filed a report, went to the stores with the charges and saw the couple on the security tapes. JSO is now looking for this couple.
